Sewer Section

The Sewer Section provides maintenance and improvements to the City’s sewer collection systems. The sanitary sewer system is approximately 120 miles in length and the stormwater collection system is approximately 163 miles. 

The responsibilities of the Sewer Section include replacing or repairing storm inlets and manholes, inspecting and cleaning inlets and televising and cleaning sewer lines. By maintaining the several-hundred miles of storm and sanitary sewers, this division helps to ensure that outgoing water is transported safely to its designated location.
